Brother-and-sister team Christophe and Isabelle Sabon continue to work wonders at Janasse, which was founded in 1973. They farm around 100 hectares of Côtes du Rhône and Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the latter is all in the northeast commune of Courthézon. Grapes are largely de-stemmed; concrete tanks are used for the Grenache, and oak for the Syrah and Mourvèdre: in other words, everything is fairly traditional. The Sabons described the conditions of 2019 as having been ideal: the season allowed them to pick perfectly ripe, healthy bunches of grapes that required no additional sorting in the cellar. Rich in anthocyanins and deeply coloured, this is a truly impressive vintage defined by purity and concentration of fruit. It’s certainly one for laying down.
